Suspect arrested in killing of preschool teacher in random I-95 shooting

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Broward County deputies announced an arrest Friday in the fatal November shooting of a 23-year-old Fort Lauderdale preschool teacher on Interstate 95.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, deputies took 21-year-old Jahkobi Williams, of Pembroke Pines, into custody Thursday night.

He’s charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Ana Estevez, who taught at the Nurtury Montessori School in Fort Lauderdale.

According to deputies, at around 9 pm on Nov. 27, Williams, driving a BMW 840i between the Sunrise Boulevard exit and the Broward Boulevard exit, sideswiped a Nissan Sentra.

That vehicle was occupied by Estevez and her boyfriend Michael, who were returning home from a vacation in North Carolina.

Williams also faces a charge of attempted murder.

He was taken to the Broward County Main Jail, where he was being held without bond.
